The Blue Mountains area near experienced a magnitude-3.6 earthquake recently, which occurred 9 kilometers beneath the surface in the Blue Mountains National Park near Warragamba. This seismic

event was reported by more than 2,000 people who felt the tremors. Fortunately, there was no tsunami threat associated with this earthquake 1.

Now, let’s delve into the geological context. While it’s true that earthquakes are often linked to tectonic plate boundaries, the Blue Mountains region in Australia is not typically associated with active plate boundaries. Here’s why:

Tectonic Plate Boundaries:

Earth’s lithosphere (the rigid outer layer) is divided into several large tectonic

Australia’s seismic activity occurs along its margins, particularly where the Australian Plate interacts with other plates.

Why the Blue Mountains Experienced an Earthquake:

Despite being away from plate boundaries, Australia still experiences occasional seismic events.

These intraplate earthquakes are caused by residual stress within the lithosphere.

Over geological time, stresses build up due to the movement of the Australian Plate.

Eventually, this stress is released as earthquakes,

plates.

These plates interact at their boundaries, leading to various geological phenomena, including earthquakes and volcanic activity.

Common types of plate boundaries include divergent, convergent, and transform boundaries.

Australia’s Tectonic Setting:

Australia sits on the Australian Plate, which is relatively stable and not characterized by intense tectonic activity.

The Blue Mountains region lies within the interior of the Australian Plate, away from plate boundaries.

Most of

even in regions far from plate boundaries.

Local Geological Features:

The Blue Mountains area has unique geological features, including sandstone cliffs, valleys, and eucalyptus forests.

The underlying rock formations contribute to the way seismic waves propagate during an earthquake.

In summary, while the Blue Mountains are not directly associated with tectonic plate boundaries, the residual stress within the Australian Plate occasionally leads to seismic activity in this region.

Earthquakes can occur even in areas considered geologically stable, reminding us that our planet’s dynamic nature keeps surprising us! 🌏🔍

A percentage-based fee makes a lot of sense, though. Any serious dev can tell you that senfing a "5" is way cheaper than moving "50".

This is why sending an email is more expensive if it's longer...

Well... Next time someone gets a speeding fine he can try to argue that...

Let's see how it pans out.
